Let's see... my list for the great character purge is, more or less.
Those two under Ukitake
The lower ranked 4th division people save Hanatarou
1st division VC
Umm... Maybe Mayuri, if only because Ishida letting him live was retarded
Uh... Komamura, if only because WTF IS THAT GUY!?
Uh... Yeah that's about it...
That cuts down about half of soul Society at least.
Love, Rose, Mashiro, and Maybe Kensei or Hachi (Doesn't really matter which) to cut down about half of the Vizards.
Hollows: About HALF of the freaking Fraccion. It doesn't matter. Then again, they're all dead anyway so meh.
Going purely to cut down the characters to something more manageable. In the process I'd also cut the divison's down to about 5 and have said captains work under the more experienced ones. For lulz.
Not sure what I'd legitimately do for canon though as in really killing them off. *Shrug*
I would kill off Momo, she gets on my nerves. Always in the way and causing trouble. She is still in love with Aizen and probably wants to be stabbed by him again, she's that delusional and idiotic.
Anywho just to reiterate you could post who you would like to kill off in bleach for personal reasons (like akiyama, lol) as well as discuss who you think would die based on the current storyline and what type of effect that characters death would have on it (like Zatono did). Either approach works here
Mine is technically make those characters never exist, because Kubo created too damn many.
If Kubo started killing off characters he'd either have to kill off many at once or not kill any at all. If he kills off one he'd make that character more significant (whether on purpose or unintentionally); the only way he could kill off unnecessary characters and keep it relatively unimportant/unemotional would be to kill off several at once.
I would prefer for all the side characters to be killed off...there's just so many that all this juggling is making it hard to get on track with the plot. For now it's cool because the characters that Kubo's juggling are cool, but what happens when the novelty wears off? Even now they're detracting from the characters that (imo) really matter.
Now, ukitake's death would certainly get shunsui mad, which i would like to see. If there is someone who can kill ukitake, then he would definitely cause problems to shunsui, which would trigger yama's intervention.
Considering byakuya, ichigo and rukia are in HM, rukia's death would 'cuz problems, ichigo would go mad and byakuya will definitely get murderous.
Also tessai or maybe yoruichi's death would cause a big fuss. But i think yoruichi should die, becuz i need tessai to prove he's god level above hacchi...lol
Now that we are talking bout deaths that could drive a person over board (Ukitake to Shunsui)(Rukia to like half the characters ) another one that I thought of that would really set Ichigo overboard would be Orihime. Not I see great problems with this in that she has theis godly ability that keeps getting hyped like she has to do something really amazing with it down the road, but I do think her death would hurt Ichigo a little more than Rukia. We just got a taste of what His bond to her is like in his battle with Ulqs in which he was so determined to save her right before he turned Ichigonator. If thats what happened then, then I wonder what would happen to him with her death . See thats the bright side to the death of either Rukia or Orihime, it could really change Ichigo and could lead to him doing something drastic and epic, maybe even killing his opponent on purpose, that battle instinct Shirosaki is talking about may actually come out.....or shirosaki himself could just come out
^^Good point, i think U got it right even with one of the reasons she won't die...her ability. But ichigonator would come out for all the nakama, i think, keigo, too.
Ichigo is just like that, he even became shinigami for that reason.
I'm just curious though, how would gin react, if matsumoto would die. I think his smile would fade a little bit. They have a sort of good relationship. Of course gin won't go overboard for her, but she is one of the few people who care about him
I think Yama should go along with Shunsui, Ukitake and Orhime.
Yama needs to die at the hands of Aizen before the finale, Shunsui and Ukitake are the "old school" captains who should just die. I have no patience for people who drag the manga on for ages because they are too chicken to use their bankai.
Orhime has proven to be uber useless. Her power sucks compared to Hacchi. Before the vizard arc we thought she was useless and it was true. Then Aizen seemed to have some interest, so we thought, maybe she can do something after all? But no. Aizen just played everyone. She is just as useless as we thought she was originally.
Can you recall the extent of her power ups over the last few years?
This is her major power up since the SS arc. Her shield can push people back a tiny bit.
Hopefully after she dies, Ichi will get his final power up.
Well the thing with Orihime is that her power is also new to her and also her hearts not there for fighting. Lets be serious though, her awesome ability which hachi has as well is for Hachi something he had to create. It took his genius, his hollow powers, and his amazing skill at kido to develop it. Now when you look at it, for Orihime, all these skills which took Hachi a lot of work to create, comes naturally to her. Therefore she has the most room for potential in this type of skill and could really become powerful and useful and surpass Hachis abilities. Right now her powers have been given some hype and foreshadowing from both Aizen and Hachi so even though she sucks now down the road she should be very important. Thats why if she did die she would cause a lot of problems and strike a chord with ichigo that would unleash some stored power, yet at the same time I don't see it happening because of the foreshadowing Kubo has placed around her. Thats why I like the idea for Rukia a little better because her power isn't as important to the story and she will still strike an emotional chord with several members of the bleachverse.
